Internationally acclaimed poet, dancer, singer and performance artist Irinushka (Irina Kuzminsky) brings her one woman show Dancing with Dark Goddesses to Club Voltaire. Following in the footsteps of the psychological dance of Anna Pavlova and the free flowing movement of Isadora Duncan, Irinushka has created a dance and poetry fusion show which has been acclaimed as "breathtaking", "utterly unique", "an incredible dance-recital tour de force" and "a performance of complete commitment, passion and technical brilliance" (Mistletoe, Roses and Thorns; Bard on a Bike)
After its first showing at Heaven's Gate festival in Stroud, Irinushka has been invited to perform Dancing with Dark Goddesses in Bath, Germany (Saarlouis), and New York, under the aegis of the International Women Artists' Salon, at Manhattan Theatre Source, Dixon Place and the Producers' Club, the latter in conjunction with a solo exhibition of her pastels.
Written, composed and choreographed by Irinushka, the show creates a web of voice, music and dance, to take us into an intimate encounter with faces of the feminine. Impressionistic but with semi-narrative threads, Dancing with Dark Goddesses speaks of the passion, the rage, the joy and the strength of the feminine.
"Irina is absolutely a voice for our time, a voice in which the feminine is exquisitely and burningly present in rage, depth, eroticism and tenderness." Jay Ramsay (poet, author)
Australian born, of White Russian descent, Irinushka is Irina Kuzminsky, a genuine Renaissance woman, who combines wide-ranging international experience in dance, dance theatre, recitals, opera and cross-arts collaborations with a rigorous academic background, including a scholarship to Oxford where she wrote her doctorate on the "Language of Women".
Join us this Saturday as we explore sex, death and all betwixt.
Hosted by shock-poet Sasha Cuha, 4 exciting performers take the stage for a night of laughs, performance and mystery. Be tittilated by the burlesque of Fillix, lose yourself in the performance of Anita Souphanh and be entranced by Grace Fashion performing the sensual dance of the East, and finished by a set of performance and music by Sasha Cuha and his band of miscreants.
